7 Symptoms Of Dangerous Diseases Ignored By Many Women


Hey there viewers! Sometimes, we women tend to ignore the signals
our bodies are sending us. Many of these symptoms can be serious. Well nip that problem right in its formative
stage. Prevention is certainly better than cure. Let’s get started with the 7 disease symptoms
that women can’t ignore. From frequent urination, to fatigue, to sudden
weight loss. We’re talking all that AND more… #1 Frequent Urination Have you been rushing to the bathroom rather
frequently? Do you constantly experience the urge to pee? Pregnancy can be the exception to this. Many pregnant women experience urine leakage,
especially when laughing, sneezing, or coughing. This happens due to the pressure put on your
bladder, urethra, and pelvic floor muscles by the growing baby. However, if you are not pregnant and still
experiencing frequent urination or loss of bladder control, it could be a sign of problems
with the kidney, urinary tract infection or hormonal imbalance. Frequent urination accompanied by thirst can
also be a sign of diabetes. But here’s a catch. How would you know if your visits to the bathroom
are too often? As a rule of thumb, it is normal to urinate
4 to 10 times a day. But if you’re going more than 10 times a
day, it might be time to visit a doctor. #2 Hair Where They Shouldn’t Be Before you start panicking, understand that
it is normal to have body hair. As women, we tend to dislike hair growth anywhere
except the head. If you have been experiencing a sudden growth
in body and facial hair, it might be time to consult someone. Excessive body hair means your body has more
male hormones than it needs. It poses not just cosmetic concerns, but medical
threats like metabolism disorder, infertility, endometriosis, and breast cancer. One study found that women who have excessive
body hair may be at greater risk of developing breast cancer. The level of the male sex hormone androgen,
was associated with both excessive body hair and the risk of developing breast cancer. Another culprit for excessive body and facial
hair is PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome. This is a common hormonal disorder experienced
by women within reproductive age. If you are experiencing adult acne, irregular
periods, obesity, or high blood pressure along with unwanted hair growth, it could be PCOS. #3 Chronic Stomach Troubles Occasional stomach problems aren’t that
big of a concern. Unless you start experiencing constipation,
diarrhea, indigestion, abdominal pain or bloating on a daily basis. Chronic stomach problems often indicate an
underlying disease like gluten intolerance, celiac disease, or Irritable Bowel Syndrome. IBS symptoms include frequent constipation
or diarrhea, abdominal cramps, or alternating constipation and diarrhoea. Studies have revealed IBS is more common in
women than men. IBS is often confused as an upset stomach
but if you consult a doctor, it is a treatable condition. You might experience relief from IBS by making
certain lifestyle changes along with medication. For frequent stomach problems, you should
consult a doctor as soon as possible. #4 Dizziness and shortness of breath It is okay to feel dizzy once in a while. It could be due to excessive tiredness, long
hours between meals, or just climbing a flight of stairs. However, if you find yourself gasping for
breath even after a light activity, something could be affecting your heart and lungs. Frequent shortness of breath after normal
day-to-day activities needs to be brought to your doctor’s attention. One of the underlying problems could be coronary
ischemia. This is caused by insufficient blood flow
to the heart muscles. It can be due to complete or partial arterial
blockage. If left untreated, it can cause a heart attack
and prove fatal. If you experience chest pain, lightheadedness,
nausea or dizziness, along with shortness of breath, you need to go to the Emergency
Room. Before we move on, here’s a video discussing

trying to shed it. Unexplained weight loss is anything but pleasant. It could signal Crohn’s disease, type 2 diabetes,
thyroid disease, gluten intolerance, HIV, cancer, or heart problems. The trick to identifying the severity of your
weight loss is to pay close attention to your weight. Losing 10-15 pounds over a span of a few months
without any significant changes in diet or lifestyle could be a concern. Talk to your doctor the first chance you get. #6 Black Stool Yeah, we get it. Nobody wants to take a look at their business
before flushing it down. But as disgusting as it sounds, you should
take a look once in a while. The color of your stool says a lot about your
health and can sometimes indicate conditions like cancer. A healthy bowel movement is characterized
by a no-strain, painless passage. While most people experience bowel movements
once a day, it is okay to go three times daily, or even every other day. Black stool is a symptom that should never
be ignored. Traces of blood or maroon colored stool suggests
bleeding in the lower GI tract. Bleeding in the GI tract can be caused by
ulcers, diverticulitis, cancer, hemorrhoids, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and other
GI conditions. It should also be noted certain diarrhoea
medications and iron supplements can cause black stool. #7 Feeling Tired All The Time Juggling between home and office can certainly
make you feel tired. But when you’ve been tired for quite a while,
it needs to be taken seriously. Bouts of fatigue are different from chronic
fatigue. Temporary tiredness can be caused by an erratic
sleep schedule or a hectic day at work. It is usually manageable with simple lifestyle
changes like eating a healthy diet, exercising, yoga, meditation and sleeping for 7-8 hours
at night. But if you’re feeling tired constantly,
even upon waking up from a restful sleep, it could be a sign of chronic fatigue syndrome,
depression, anemia, cancer, liver failure, thyroid disease, cardiovascular disease, kidney
failure, diabetes, or sleep apnea. Do you keep track of your health? Have you experienced any of these symptoms? Let us know in the comments below. We would love to hear from you!
